When Larry McMurtry's classic novel of the post-World War II era was originally published in 1961, it created a sensation in Texas literary circles. Never before had a writer portrayed the contemporary West in conflict with the Old West in such stark, realistic, unsentimental ways. "Horseman, Pass By," on which the film "Hud" is based, tells the story of Homer Bannon, an old-time cattleman who epitomizes the frontier values of honesty and decency, and Hud, his unscrupulous stepson. Caught in the middle is the narrator, Homer's young grandson, Lonnie, who is as much drawn to his grandfather's strength of character as he is to Hud's hedonism and materialism. Memorable characters, powerful themes, and illuminating detail make "Horseman, Pass By" vintage McMurtry.… (mais)

Horseman, Pass By is the title of Larry McMurtry's debut novel [1961], set in the dry barren flatland of West Texas. It is also part of the epitaph I saw above William Butler Yeats tombstone in my ancestral homeland in Sligo, Ireland. Both are elegiac summations of lost times and vanished lives. I learned soon enough reading this world-weary novel that it is the first volume of what is now known as The Thalia Trilogy, Thalia being the small town that centers the three novels. I also realized one chapter in that my novel was also the movie with Paul Newman in the title role, Hud. (The third part of the trilogy is also the Oscar winning The Last Picture Show.) I cannot discuss the plot very well because in doing so, I would be revealing the spoilers that encompass most of the story. Let's just say it is narrated by one teenager, Lonnie, as he recounts the hardscrabble lives around him, his life on his grandfather's ranch, and the abundant toxic masculinity surrounding this small-town Texas of the 1950's. The story is beautifully written. Let me leave you with this, a dancehall during the week of the rodeo: "...and on the dance ​floor the dancers hugged and swirled in the blue darkness and the smoke. The only ones who weren't having a good time were a few lonesome-looking cowboys at the bar....the jukebox flared up and played hillbilly dance music the rest of the time I stayed. It played old songs by Hank Williams and Ernest Tubb and Kitty Wells, and it was cold, cold hearts in the darkness with dancers bumping into each other and going to dance some more....It was no more work and no more lonesome and all the honky-tonk angels living it up."

It’s a glimpse into ranch life in 1950s Texas from the viewpoint of a teenager. The writing was good in a workmanlike way, but I didn’t feel much poetry to it. ( )

Horseman, Pass By : A Novel is Larry McMurtry's first novel. A fiction rich with setting of the Texas panhandle. Life on a large cattle ranch. Geography of scrub grass, mesquite, cows and horses. It offers a wonderful feeling of that West which I love. A stellar first novel. I encourage you to read it ,especially if you like that setting. ( )

I’m not a Western fan, folks, but the last few Westerns I’ve read, including this one, have gone straight to the top of my Best Books Read list. Oh my. And I swear to you that not only do I not like Westerns, I am not a lover of horses or guns either, so how-in-the-world has this happened?

What a story. What a writer. What a great book.

Even if it is a Western. ( )

I started this on the train back from Portland, and was immediately drawn in by the characters. I'll have to watch "Hud" after finishing the novel. ( )
